Sovrin User Group meeting #1 on 11th Oct 2016 16:00BST


#1

Join using Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/9270333963

Following the launch of the Sovrin Foundation last week, I’d like to invite you to join a group of like-minded people from around the world who are actively working on Sovrin or examining it in more detail, or just curious. Reinforcing the open-source foundations of Sovrin, this is an open group.

This initial session will cover:

  1. How this user group relates to the Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees and the Technical Governance Board. This group is independent of the Foundation’s direct governance but can feed suggestions/recommendations into it.
  2. A review of the London launch on the 29th Sept - impact & feedback.
  3. Latest document set - do we need any more white papers etc (suggestions on legal & liability issues, use cases and security/penetration testing already received - thanks for those!).
  4. Latest code release status.
  5. Upcoming tech deployments & near term roadmap.
  6. What’s missing?
  7. Shaping & growing the user group, regularity of meetings, future events eg hackathon etc.
